Screen Shot 2015-07-19 at 15.16.31

‘Writer Travis Elborough in collaboration with director Paul Kelly presents a screening of The Ace of Clubs, a new short film that marks the culmination of Elborough’s Chisenhale Gallery Victoria Park Residency 2014 -15.

The Ace of Clubs draws on Elborough’s investigations into the history of Victoria Park, its many leisure clubs and the importance of the park as a recreational space. The film compiles footage shot by Kelly over the course of Elborough’s Games for May event series and includes interviews with members of Victoria Park’s model boating and bowling clubs, offering a wry mediation on hobbies, place, and belonging.’
